Chania, Crete's capital until 1971, is now the spiritual capital of the island.
Franked by the impressive White Mountains and a coastline of sandy beaches, the attractive harbourfront leads back through a maze of narrow streets lined with old Venetian houses towards the busy commercial center. The old, walled town invites the visitor to become lost among its theatrical bustle of shops, markets, taverns, bars and village street life.
The town is a beautiful puzzle of Minoan, Venetian and Turkish architecture punctuated by hidden squares.
Casa Delfino Suites is seventeen kilometers from the Chania International airport and is a fifteen-minute taxi ride. Souda Bay is the nearest port, at a distance of seven kilometers. Transfer arrangements can be made with the concierge for transfers between the hotel and your point of arrival / departure.
